How an Administrator Can Help

Prior to a person’s passing, they can designate within their written will their consent to have an estate administrator work with their family. This helps to make sure that the person’s wishes are carried out the way they would want. The administrator will oversee declaring what is in the estate, what the estate owes, and how it will be carried out. For this reason, having a trustworthy Shreveport estate lawyer there can be beneficial. Speak with Richie, Richie & Oberle, L.L.P. for help with planning estate administration.

An estate administrator will oversee matters such as:

  • Inventory: The state of Louisiana requires that a list of assets be submitted as part of the administration. This will include the property owned by the estate as well as its value
  • Accounting: The administrator will need to disclose the value of the estate as well as any liability it owes before assets are distributed
  • Paying debts: Those who are owed money from an estate can submit a claim for which the administrator will need to acknowledge and respond to
